A Single Story: The Ship’s Masts are a Deeper Shade of Crimson
A massacre on a 18th C British Slave Ship. An unlikely subject for master painter JMW Turner. An abolitionist, Turner used his fame to reignite the memory of this horrific, shameful chapter in British history. A Massacre first brought to the public eye by freedman Olaudah Equiano.
In association with The Barbican.
